*Spoiler Alert: The identity of the Masked Singer eliminated tonight is below.*
The fifth season of the Masked Singer kicked off tonight with special guest host Niecy Nash (Nick Cannon may have gotten COVID according to reports), and the show was enjoyable offering some exciting possibilities over who we may see this season.
At the end of the night, it was the Snail who became the first celebrity to go home, and it turned out to be a favorite of everyone who knows him. Kermit The Frog. We had a hunch it could be him, his voice was too unique to be a regular celeb.
As for the other masks we met tonight:
Russian Doll was first on stage. While I thought it was creepy, they (?) could really sing. Some of the guesses included Lady A and Boyz To Men. It could be Boyz To Men. Heck, we just had Kermit The Frog.
The Seashell can sing. I joked that they brought back LeAnne Rimes. Some of the guesses included Kristen Chenowith and Hillary Duff. She’ll be one to watch for sure.
Raccoon mask was next and he’s a mess. He said the show was “The most fun he’s had in his life”. He drew a long list of gritty guesses like Nick Nolte, Sammy Hagar, and Danny DeVito.
Robopine is impressive. The costume, the voice. Everything. Could it be Jamie Foxx like Jenny said? He’s great. He’s not going anywhere.
But the Kermit reveal was just too awesome. What a wonderful way to start the season.
The show was also fast moving and fun. The exact formula that has made it enjoyable up to this point.
See you next week!
